This is the best lumix forum.

I run the FZ1 flashed to FZ2...
no extrss just a 64M card.

I think the FZ1 is great its the lightness and well the quality zoom lens sets apart.
Its sleeper took a punt on bying it but was choice.

I print on a HP7660 up to A4 results on gloss paper stunning.
ps 7660 is 6 inks and easy to refill.

Korean inks the best www.inktec.com

I an thinking of a Digital SLR BUT you will not get 12X zoom in one lens.

Perhaps the FZ20

But really the FZ1 @ 2 megapixlas is pretty good.

Welcome aboard M8T! Fellow FZ-1(v2)er's always welcome!
How do you like the HP 7660? I have an Epson R200 but was think of picking up the HP just to do B&W's. That's the one with the gray cart, right?

Anyway, welcome!

LOL Nick and "M8t" hes right into it now.

Howdy Oz. Always good to see the folks from over the ditch. Just jump in and post away. :-) The whole secret to the FZ's is simply the glass. Panasonic have done an excellent job in the lens dpt. DSLR ??....well its not me thats for sure. Not really capable for what I want, so the Panasonic's will do me just fine at the moment. The Nikon 8800 is tempting though.

Anyway, just post away like we said. Decent folk here. It tookawhile for me to post here, I just lurked for ages, then Bob dragged me out and now they can't get rid of me :-)

Danny.
